The aim of this module is to give students a thorough understanding of the theoretical approaches in cognitive and affective neuroscience, where we will evaluate evidence from both behavioural and neuropsychological studies. We will explore how normal cognitive functioning takes place and how this can be elucidated by looking at brain damaged patients and neuroimaging studies. The lecture series will include an introductory lecture on the overall aims and objectives of cognitive neuroscience followed by a series of lectures looking at attention, perception, memory and movement. Subsequent lectures will focus on affective neuroscience, looking at neuroscience of empathy; neural basis of emotional reactivity, including attentional processes, biases and emotion regulation; and neuroscience of different emotions such as fear, anger, or disgust.
